Well they came for the DR on Monday :(
Definitely hard to see it go...especially when I hit the starter and she fired up better than she ever did before.
Anyhoo I got my splint off Monday morning...Orthopedic surgeon says that as long as I don't put weight on the leg that the rod will hold it all just fine. Pretty awesome since I'll finally be able to shower...sponge baths are fine with cute nurses, but they get old when you're giving them to yourself :(
Big thing to work on over the next 3 weeks before my next appointment is getting mobility back in my joints. I've got just over 90 deg in my knee, and somewhere between 10-15deg in my ankle. The ankle is the worst because there was a bit of muscle damage + having have it been locked up in the splint for 3 weeks, but it's loosening up more and more every day.
After my next appointment if everything is still looking great, they'll schedule me for the bone graft which will be accompanied by a long recovery.
